antiseptics / disinfectants
Project description

With this project Qualiphar acquire the knowledge to develop a new generation of antseptica / disinfectants that offer some significant advantages over the current generation of products on the market, namely: a broad spectrum, colorless, short exposure time, reduced side effects, with increased activity relative to microbial biofilms and with proven activity against recent clinical isolates. These new products should be used both to disinfect wounds and intact skin (antiseptic) and as for the disinfection of objects (disinfectants). It is also important that the new products clearly delineated, simple and quick procedures / protocols / procedures allow for use in hospitals.
